Re: Buying advice and reviews please.

The Espace is fantastic value for money. But the corollary is that it can also empty your wallet very rapidly.
Because the Espace has a reputation for unreliability it is silly cheap. So an equivalent Espace will sell for loads less than a Sharalaxy.
But this makes it a second hand joy.
What you save on buying it you are unlikely to spend on repairs so you get more car for less.
In particular the petrol models in practice do minimally less MPG than the diesels yet sell for lots less.
A 70 reg Grand Espace with everything kit for £3500 or less has to be one of the bargains of the decade.
I love my Espace - it doubles as a van - tows anything and is quiet, modern, effective and little hassle.
This is the fourth Espace I have had- tried a Galaxy and a Voyager and hated them.
